A Woman For President!

A fun fact on Election Day Eve:

Hillary Clinton was NOT the first woman to run for president.

That designation belongs to Victoria Woodhull, who ran for the office in 1872, a good 50 years before women even had the right to vote and 150 years ahead of Hillary.

Having only three years of formal education, she was quite a confident lady. Unstoppable, she ran for office at 34 years of age and therefore a year shy of the constitutionally required 35-year age limit to be president.

She’s all but excluded from the history books so it's not surprising that the good majority of people have not heard of this pioneering woman and suffragette.
